• Tender drumstick leaves should be used to prepare Thoran. • Separate drumstick leaves from stem and chop. Chopping prevents leaves to stick together while cooking. • Sometime drumstick leaves will have a bitter taste which depends on the season and type of leaves used. • In Kerala, drumstick leaves wont be used to prepare dshes on Malayalam Calander month ‘Karkadakam’ due to climate and health reasons during that period.
